Nature Offers Key Lessons On Harvesting Solar Power, Say Chemists

Posted on Oct 31, 2011 in Environment

ScienceDaily (Sep. 24, 2011) — Clean solutions to human energy demands are essential to our future. While sunlight is the most abundant source of energy at our disposal, we have yet to learn how to capture, transfer and store solar energy efficiently. According to University of Toronto chemistry professor Greg Scholes, the answers can be found in the complex systems at work in nature. “Solar fuel production often starts with the energy from light being absorbed by an assembly of molecules,” said Scholes, the D.J. LeRoy Distinguished Professor at U of T. “The energy is...
